The Little Lauded Benefits Of Lithium

Some Lithium related websites:

Lithium: The First Mood Stabilizer
http://bipolar.about.com/od/lithium/a/010312_lithium1.htm [It escapes me why they speak of lithium as a 'medication' rather than an essential nutrient!]

http://drlwilson.com/ARTICLES/LITHIUM.htm  has an interesting list of sources, though I don't understand his blanket panning of a bunch of common vegetables as too 'yin'

There is another quite different list here

Of course the lithium content of any food is going to vary considerably depending on its availability in the soil. The list is also in mg/kg, so quantities have little relation to serving size. Commercial growers who don't pay attention to proper soil care have probably mined the trace minerals out of their soil.
